Oxfam Cymru and Business in the Community have teamed up to help female refugees improve their employability skills in a programme called Sanctuary. Their clients are often well educated, but lack the skills they need to get a job. Business volunteers are needed to help with basic work skills before the women embark on work placements and job coaches are needed to give ongoing support. Training for job coaches is taking place in Newport on 8th October and for business volunteers in Cardiff on 26th November and Swansea on 28th November.
